In a gentle, loving way. To say her interactions with him were hilarious would be an understatement. Cal was a refreshing hero for me. I really liked that he was the vulnerable one while he and Grace were getting to know one another.
In fact, most of the time, while Grace was internally lusting after Cal, she was quite rude and dismissive of Cal. I found Cal to be quite wonderful. Perfect, perfect Lester had Grace going to her imaginary world and envisioning a perfect world with him as her co-star. He wanted children. He was perfect. Then his cell phone rang. Do whatever you want, baby. I'm yours. Lester flipped open his phone.

I choked and sputtered, lurching up straight in my seat. Around us, patrons grew still. Lester ignored us all. So there, you disgusting whore! Margaret, we need to talk. Come on, girls.

Let's sit in the kitchen. Oh, Grace, this shouldn't go here! It's not funny. This is serious artwork, honey.

I grinned. Callahan O'Shea stood in the doorway, shrinking the size of the room. What are you doing here? He likes it. Lawrence wouldn't lurch out of his two-year silence and deny that fact. He's also my grandfather," Callahan said, crossing his arms. I knew I just had to let her get there on her own and she did.
The heroines in these stories, while finding love, more importantly, always find a way to find happiness with themselves and work through the hurt and heartache that life throws their way. This was an emotional roller-coaster ride of a read for me, filled with humour and heartbreak and love. View all 3 comments.

For instance, in middle school she wanted to be accepted by the cool kids, so she invented an older, much cooler boyfriend who attended a different school. Worked like a charm.

The same thing worked for her in high school when she invented a beautiful, French man who was in college and totally adored her. And so on and so on. When her baby sister, Natalie, begins dating Grace's ex-fiance, Andrew, everyone takes pity on Grace and presto! Another imaginary boyfriend pops out of her mouth before she can take it back.
Wyatt turns out to be a pediatric surgeon who comes to Grace's rescue when her car tire blows out. In his spare time Wyatt rescues feral cats, speaks at medical conventions, and is simply too good to be true. But what other options does Grace have?

Then late one evening Grace happens to see the dark shadow of a man testing the doors and windows of the empty house next door.

Feeling horrible, Grace takes a plate of her special brownies and a bottle of wine to Callahoun's house by way of an apology; however, she ends up smacking the poor guy again by accident this time.

Days later she wrecks Cal's truck that is parked near the end of her driveway. After pages of squabbling and hilarious dialogue, Cal and Grace finally hit it off. Their romance is simple and very sweet. Cal goes out of his way to do the most incredible, sweetest things possible to prove his love for Grace, including driving her to a movie theatre an hour away to surprise her with the movie Gone With The Wind.
The only barrier to their relationship is the fact that Cal is an ex-con, having recently been released from prison, and Grace's family does not know how to deal with that. Please note that Cal is not an alpha, nor is he a reformed bad-boy. I honestly enjoy the heros that Kristan Higgins writes into her stories. They are refreshingly different, well-rounded characters. I only wish I could hop into their heads and read their perspective on things once in awhile. I really struggled as to whether or not I wanted to give this book 3 or 4 stars.

It started slow for me and I was annoyed with the fact that Grace was a pushover - a true doormat - to her family and her youngest sister, Natalie, who became engaged to Grace's ex-fiance. These issues are cleared up by the end of the story when Grace finally makes her stand and what a great ending to this story I might add! Grace's oldest sister, Margaret, an attorney and a real ballbuster, has some of the best lines in the book. But I couldn't help feeling that many of the characters and family members were cliches the gay sidekick and the cranky grandmother or were added simply for filler.
But all in all, it was a good book with slow start and a better ending. Not as much fun as Just One Of The Guys, and it lacked the wholesome family dynamic that I like in Higgin's books, but I can honestly say I enjoyed it and would recommend it to my friends. View all 8 comments.

The heroine is a character easy to understand and empathize with, even if she does present herself as a major doormat at times. The admirable theme that runs throughout this novel and its main characters is the loyalty and protectiveness of family, even when loved ones don't deserve or return it.
Overall, I found this adult romance standalone to be an easy and enjoyable reading experience.
If you're a Kristan Higgins fan, definitely add it to your list! View all 4 comments.
